I just tried to boot into Windows and it said Missing Operating System. I booted up into my Windows 7 disk for recovery and it said it couldn't find the installation. Clearly, it's there but it doesn't know how to boot into it or something. I went into prompt and typed in disk part, list volume, etc and "Windows 7" is no longer C:/. How can I change the boot order of volumes from the repair prompt?

Have you looked for a free 3rd party boot manager? I made a mistake and had two versions of windows (XP and vista) plus Linux on one machine - it wouldnt dual boot because it couldnt work with the windows dual boot so I couldnt access the XP the third party boot manager helped me out

open the bios, on startup it will say (on the first screen) Press .... to enter setup/bios.
go through the menu's and find boot sequance and change the 1st to the HDD that your operating system is installed on.
remove any other kind of storage device like mp3 player, phones etc.
